The authors come together to offer clear organizing habits that are musts for adults with ADHD. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Ich kenne diese Buch seit Jahren und es ist immer wieder mein ständiger Begleiter!

Was diesen Ratgeber so besonders macht? Es werden "andere" Organisationsmechanismen aufgezeigt, welche, die für ADHSler funktionieren. Keinem ADHSler nützt es, wenn ihm jemand sagt, er soll sich einen Terminkalender kaufen, wenn ihm niemand erklärt, wie man es schafft, täglich reinzuschauen und seine Termin dort auch wirklich einzutragen.

ADD friendly ways beschreibt wirklich ADHStaugliche Wege sich in der geordneten Welt zurecht zu finden. Ich nutze diesen Ratgeber immer wieder um Baustellen des täglichen Lebens neu zu gestalten, um sie für mich gangbar zu machen. Inzwischen bin ich in der Lage mein tägliches Leben sehr gut zu strukturieren und empfinde mein ADHS nicht mehr als Bürde, sondern eher als Bereicherung.

Das Buch ist sehr gut gegliedert und nachdem ich es einmal komplett durchgelesen habe, suche ich mir jetzt die Kapitel raus, die gerade besondere Aufmerksamkeit verdienen.

Vorliegendes Buch bringt tatsächlich neue, spannende Ansätze für Leute mit einem leichten Knick in der Birne. Ich habe in keinem anderen Buch zum Thema ADHS und Selbstorganisation bessere, konkretere und leichter umsetzbare Strategien gefunden.

Once you realize what's going on with you, get help with a professional - and read this book without delay.
First of all, you can read it, as it is all in little sections and boxed summaries. Much unlike another book I returned as it turned out to be 500 pages of small print with no obvious sections or breaks - if you can read that, you probably don't have ADD.
And secondly, it lets you work with who you are, not against it. Love the part on simplifying, being a hare not a tortoise and the 5 minute challenges!

Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
All those 5-star reviews made me hope that this would be a brilliant and helpful book. Sadly I find it rather difficult to read and have yet to finish reading it.

I'm not 100% sure why but I think it is because the author often uses too many words to say fairly simple things which makes it a slow and repetitive book.

That's about exactly the opposite of what my ADD-brain wants and I really have to force myself to read this book. I have managed to read about 80% in 3 months - usually I read 40-45 books a year. That's how bad this book is for me.

I feel that many parts of this book could and should have been shortened to improve acessibilty for people like me. Instead they seem dumbed down and stretched out endlessly. My mind constantly wandered off when I tried to read for longer than a few minutes.

So far I haven't found a single strategy in this book that I had not yet discovered myself through experience and/or common sense. I don't think I'll ever finish this book...

Finally!! 28. Dezember 2003
Von Candace Rushing - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I have read 7 or 8 books on ADD, all of which promised to suggest organizing strategies that someone with ADD can implement and maintain. Those books spent 95% of the time defining the problem, and the other 5% on general advice like, "you need lots of structure." I learned more about ADD in general from this book than any other, and I recognized several traits that I'd always struggled with, but hadn't realized were common among ADDers. This book gave me practical, useable advice on HOW to simplify and structure my life, so that I can achieve and maintain order and reach my goals without becoming overwhelmed and giving up in frustration. By implementing the maintenance strategies first, I now feel that I can tackle the chaos and clutter a little at a time, and get out from under. I can feel my depression lifting, and I feel hopeful for the first time in a long while. Great book!

What I've been looking for 2. Januar 2003
Von Sarah Dreher - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is an excellent book. I'm a clinical psychologist working with ADD clients, and I have ADD myself. This is the book I've been looking for. Have ordered several copies for my clients, and one for my professional organizer. Easy to read, holds your attention (a small miracle), written in ADD-friendly style, and full of useful information and suggestions. It's simply the best book on the subject around.

Not for the single 19. Juli 2003
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
When I got this book I thought that I finally might find organizing strategies that work for me. This book does offer strategies for finding what works for each individual rather than a one size fits all approach which is why I gave it 3 stars instead of less.
The book seems most helpful for those who have roommates or family to provide support during the process of setting up new systems. Or for those with the money to hire a professional to work with them on this process. I have friends who want to help me make more life more livable but none has the kind of time that this book requires.
I picked up a book called Outwitting Clutter by Bill Adler. It may be simplistic for some of the readers here. I found it very helpful. It's the first book that actually led to organizing action on my part.

echoes of "Conquering Chronic Disorganization" - superb! 7. September 2005
Von R. Matt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I was daunted by the thickness of the book when I received it - I was hoping for a fun read like Judith Kolberg's book "Conquering Chronic Disorganization" which was more in a story form. This has all the makings of a textbook! Don't get me wrong - you couldn't pry this book out of my hands. I would, however, have liked to see more of Ms. Kolberg's enlightening thoughts and style from her earlier book transferred to this book (ex: I liked the story in the first book about the body double, it made more of an impression on me than this book did).

It is filled to the brim with REAL solutions. The authors claimed to offer ADD-friendly organizing solutions. They deliver and MORE. I was tempted to hop and skip through the book, but gems of information were hidden on every page - even in sections I thought didn't apply to me.

One suggestion to the authors: Please consider converting your info into a "study" program (ex, color coded folders for each section). I wanted to present this book as a gift to my ADD mother, but realized it is too much for her. We Add'ers need a more visually-friendly "tactile" presentation to refer back to make notes and such as we begin our journey of applying what we have learned.

This book is already a classic... and indispensable tool for ADD'ers. I am left with a new determination with skills in hand to improve my life. My hats off to you!

Who Knew? 10. März 2006
Von Trudy Shaw - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I was just diagnosed with ADD a few months ago. Since it was new to me (I wasn't self-diagnosed and knew very little about it), I came to Amazon to buy a book that had been recommended to me. "ADD-Friendly Ways to Organize Your Life" was the other half of a "better together" offer with that one, so I went ahead and bought it. I just finished writing a 3-star review of that recommended book. I've learned more about ADD in general from this one, to say nothing of organizing.

Okay, I have two post-graduate degrees and work in research, so you'd think I could figure these things out by myself... But if the only ideas I retain from this book are to organize on shelves instead of in drawers and vertically rather than horizontally, it will have been a savior. Reading the sentence "Retire your dresser" was a eureka moment! Who knew that something like that could make such a difference? I now have shelves in the closet for my clothes and actually put them away after I do laundry. At the office, I've grabbed an abandoned metal magazine rack from the supply room so I can keep current projects vertical and in sight without having to put more on my desk than is already there. There are some suggestions in the book that seem counterintuitive, or contradict common advice on organization, but as soon as I read them I knew they were just what I needed. Whether there really is something about the "ADD brain" that makes these off-beat suggestions work, I have no idea, but I don't really care.

My closest match in the book chapters was "Chaos," and I have a long way to go, believe me. I think the fact that the person presented in that chapter was single was a big help to me. As some others have said, I can't use all the suggestions in the book for using outside resources, and not all of the chapters fit my situation, but the suggestions I can use are more than worth the price and the time. Something that made the book even more useful is that it doesn't cover just home, or just work, or just any other part of life, but has ideas that can be integrated into the whole.

I'd read the reviews here before I bought the book, and wondered if I'd find it "dumbed down" in wording or format, but it doesn't seem that way to me. Maybe it's because I spend a lot of time online and reading technical material, but I'm so used to reading things with bullets, and charts, and lists, that it just seems natural. It may not be great literature, but it's not meant to be. It is the most helpful material I've ever read on organizing my life.
